We have an effective post-election audit in New Mexico.

The cost of a good audit will cost a few million dollars across the country, assuming a close race - say, a 1% margin.

In addition to spotting errors, a benefit of the audit is to deter fraudulent manipulation of the vote which has been shown to be feasible with voting machines operated by software. It is hard to know what that deterrent is worth.
